Very few of us have seen a championship ring in person. We hear how the championship rings that professional athletes receive cost thousands of dollars, but it’s hard to truly understand how massive they are. San Francisco Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford posted a photo on Twitter Sunday night that should help put it into perspective.

With that came the long awaited spoils that go with being World Series champions. Prior to the home opener on Friday [...]
Well, it's been a few games now, and we've gotten to know our 2013 Giants a little better. Sure, they're almost the same team as last year, but every year is different. Guys get better, guys regress, and you just never know how things will shake out. Here's what I've seen so far:

The San Francisco Giants just completed their home opener, losing the series to the St. Louis Cardinals two games to one; but the play on the field and the results of those games were secondary in comparison to what was going on off the field. The Giants held a weekend long celebration, highlighting their 2012 World Series victory and the accomplishment of 2012 NL MVP, Buster Posey...
